Storyline

"Irish Eyes" explores the relationship between two Irish-American brothers in Boston born to immigrant parents and raised in a rough, working class Irish neighborhood. After watching their father being gunned down in front of their eyes as children, Thomas and Sean Phelan grow up building their lives on opposite ends of the law. Thomas, the studious and responsible brother, creates a better life for himself through education and hard, honest work. Eventually, he builds a successful career as a US Attorney. Sean, the more rebellious of the two, gets caught up in a life of crime and rises through the ranks to become the head of the Irish Mob. Spanning from post World War II during the late 1950's through the Irish Mob wars of the 1970's and culminating in their adulthood in the 1990's, the story is set to the backdrop of backroom politics and the realities of the Irish Mob and it's gang wars.

Well acted story done in by so so film making
6 November 2004 | by dbborroughsSee all my reviews

I saw this as Vendetta and was very disappointed. Its not that the acting or the story was bad, its just that the direction and everything about the film on a technical level comes across as unimaginative bad TV.

Basically its the story of an Irish family in Boston where some end up as good guys and some as bad. Daniel Baldwin stars as the head of the Irish Mafia who is running into trouble.

I really can't say much about this movie. I wanted so much to like it but was forced to keep repeating "This should be better, this should be better" over and over to prevent my frustration from harming the TV.

Its not quite that bad, and it is worth seeing on cable. I just wish it was better.
